Hello from South Bucks

#1

Post by keithjs » Mon Jan 13, 2020 7:36 pm

Hi all, thanks for having me. Although my main hobby isn't model railways I do have have a layout featuring all things Southern, pre and post war and mainly branch lines etc.
My biggest headache is knowing which rolling stock should run with which loco...Hence my first question.
I was in Kernow models in Guildford on Saturday and was drawn to (slightly off my usual Southern interest I know) the Heljan Metropolitan Bo Bo locos.
Can anyone advise which (if any) RTR rolling stock I can use whether it be goods or passenger please? I'm not bothered which particular one I get so long as there is something behind. I must admit I quite like 9001 John Milton or 9006 William Penn.
Thank you all for any help you might be able to offer....

Yes. His shop moved from Wycombe to our local parade. He now has four boxes of track and a few toys.

Indeed. Such a shame as my main modelling hobby is plastic kits. He used to have a great selection of those too. Haven't been to the shop since mid last year. Mind you we do like Poppins cafe at the other end of the parade......
Nearest decent shop to us now is probably Time Machine in Maidenhead or The Dolls house shop in Twyford. Mind you, despite the short opening hours, Transport Treasures in Aston Clinton is pretty goo too...

Welcome to the friendly forum. Careful - the hobby is highly addictive. Mind you, with the way things are going in this country it will soon be recognised as such and the NHS will set up help clinics to help us break the habit!
